    Amazon S3

    Amazon S3 is a great service to safely backup your data where redundancy is guaranteed and the cost is fair. We use Amazon S3 for data that we backup and hope we never need to access but in the case of a catastrophic or even small slip of the finger with the delete command we know our data and our client's data is safely backed up by Amazon S3.Transferring data into Amazon S3 is free but transferring data out has an associated, albeit low, cost per GB. This needs to be kept in mind if you plan on transferring out a lot of data frequently. There may be other cost effective options although Amazon S3 prices are really low per GB. Transferring 150TB would cost approximately $50 per month.

    Google Cloud Datastore

    When you want to develop a system that doesn't have consistent data or maybe a zig-zag data structure, that time Google Cloud Datastore really helps to fit in your system environment. It provides lots of good functionality so you can quickly start your development. Whenever you want to perform certain operations like order by, it automatically suggests you create an index, so all solutions at one place. Also based on your database location, it helps to faster retrieval of data. And if you want to strictly follow SQL queries only, Primary key, Foreign key old concepts, then you are at the wrong place.

    Pros

    Amazon S3

    • Fantastic developer API, including AWS command line and library utilities.
    • Strong integration with the AWS ecosystem, especially with regards to access permissions.
    • It's astoundingly stable- you can trust it'll stay online and available for anywhere in the world.
    • Its static website hosting feature is a hidden gem-- it provides perhaps the cheapest, most stable, most high-performing static web hosting available in PaaS.

    Google Cloud Datastore

    • It is hosted in GCP, our primary cloud provider.
    • It integrates with all the services we use in GCP.

    Cons

    Amazon S3

    • Web console can be very confusing and challenging to use, especially for new users
    • Bucket policies are very flexible, but the composability of the security rules can be very confusing to get right, often leading to security rules in use on buckets other than what you believe they are

    Google Cloud Datastore

    • Part of the Google Cloud Platform walled garden.
    • Pay for read/writes to the datastore, in addition to storage.
    • Not many libraries exist.

    I give Google Cloud a full score because it satisfies our needs so well. We host most of our infrastructure on Google Cloud and using Google Cloud Datastore helps us to solve our NoSQL storage problem. and Google Cloud Datastore is so scalable and elastic. It saves us lots of time to maintain and saves us money.

    It is tricky to get it all set up correctly with policies and getting the IAM settings right. There is also a lot of lifecycle config you can do in terms of moving data to cold/glacier storage. It is also not to be confused with being a OneDrive or SharePoint replacement, they each have their own place in our environment, and S3 is used more by the IT team and accessed by our PHP applications. It is not necessarily used by an average everyday user for storing their pictures or documents, etc.

    AWS has always been quick to resolve any support ticket raised. S3 is no exception. We have only ever used it once to get a clarification regarding the costs involved when data is transferred between S3 and other AWS services or the public internet. We got a response from AWS support team within a day.

    Alternatives Considered

    Amazon S3

    Overall, we found that Amazon S3 provided a lot of backend features Google Cloud Storage (GCS) simply couldn't compare to. GCS was way more expensive and really did not live up to it. In terms of setup, Google Cloud Storage may have Amazon S3 beat, however, as it is more of a pseudo advanced version of Google Drive, that was not a hard feat for it to achieve. Overall, evaluating GCS, in comparison to S3, was an utter disappointment.

    Google Cloud Datastore

    If deploying an application in Google Cloud Platform, using Google Cloud Datastore is a no brainer because of the simplicity of setup. Other options would require more setup and configuration, and do not come with the same level of guaranteed uptime as Google Cloud Datastore. In our case, we've been using Google Cloud Datastore for 4 years without any issues and have never had to think about it.

    Return on Investment

    Amazon S3

    • It practically eliminated some real heavy storage servers from our premises and reduced maintenance cost.
    • The excellent durability and reliability make sure the return of money you invested in.
    • If the objects which are not active or stale, one needs to remove them. Those objects keep adding cost to each billing cycle. If you are handling a really big infrastructure, sometimes this creates quite a huge bill for preserving un-necessary objects/documents.
